SculpSure Q & A
Why can’t I get rid of these stubborn fat deposits?
Weight loss is a simple matter of calories taken in and calories expended. However, that process takes place throughout your body, and you have no control over which fat cells are called into action when there is a caloric deficit.
Most of your fat cells lie just beneath the surface of your skin. However, everyone stores fat in a slightly different way. You might have areas of your body that are the first to show changes when you gain weight, and the last to respond to weight loss.
Even if you reach and maintain a healthy weight and are reasonably fit, you might have lingering fatty deposits that just won’t go away. That’s where body contouring comes in.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a treatment that permanently destroys a portion of targeted fat cells. It’s used to refine the contours of your body, and is effective in the following areas:
- Upper arms
Before modern body-contouring systems became available, the only way to eliminate stubborn fatty deposits was through liposuction, a surgical procedure with numerous risks.
How does SculpSure work?
SculpSureⓇ is a body-contouring system that uses laser technology to create heat deep within your layer of fat tissue. The treatment platform keeps your skin at a safe temperature throughout each session, but the deeper layer of fat cells is heated to the point that many of those cells sustain permanent damage.
No longer able to store fat, the damaged cells release accumulated fat and die. The resulting cellular waste is processed and eliminated from your body via your lymphatic system. Those cells never regenerate, and therefore cannot expand to store fat.
It usually takes several SculpSure treatments to achieve the best possible results, and it takes several months for the effects to become apparent. Treatments are fast, painless, and require no advance preparation or recovery time.
